The new DHL High Value service will expand the current high-value transport service offerings by extending the required security standards to less-than-truckload shipments.

SMEs as well as major corporate clients will have the option of theft-proof overland transport for high-value shipments weighing up to 2,500 kg.

Thomas George, chief executive of DHL Freight, said: “We expect that the demands for the transport of high-value products in terms of security, transparency and pro-active information management will continue to increase.”

DHL High Value has been available in countries such as Germany, Hungary or the Netherlands for some time. Up to now, however, it only comprised FTL or LTL shipments for specific clients. In the next few months, it will become a standard service offering for LTL shipments and will be made available across Europe in a step-by-step approach.

In addition to Germany, Hungary and the Netherlands, it will include Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland and the UK, with full coverage of all European countries envisaged for 2012.
